Po­lice: Man tried to return stolen items to Home De­pot

Newark Post - - POLICE BLOTTER -

A New York man is in cus­tody af­ter try­ing to return stolen items to a hard­ware store in Sub­ur­ban Plaza, po­lice said.

The man walked into the Home De­pot at ap­prox­i­mately 1 p.m. March 4 and at­tempted to return $990 worth of win­dow shades. An em­ployee rec­og­nized the shades as hav­ing been stolen the day be­fore and called po­lice, ac­cord­ing to Sgt. Ger­ald Bryda, a spokesman for the Ne­wark Po­lice De­part­ment.

Of­fi­cers ar­rived and took the man into cus­tody. He gave po­lice a fake Penn­syl­va­nia driver’s li­cense, but of­fi­cers even­tu­ally iden­ti­fied him as Jonathan Sanchez, 33 of the Bronx, N.Y., Bryda said.

Sanchez was charged with re­ceiv­ing stolen prop­erty, crim­i­nal im­per­son­ation and posses­sion of a fic­ti­tious li­cense. He was com­mit­ted to the Howard R. Young Cor­rec­tional In­sti­tu­tion in lieu of $2,500 cash bond.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing this in­ci­dent is asked to con­tact Of­fi­cer An­drew Vari at AVari@ ne­wark.de.us or 302-366-7100, ext. 3486.
